Suicide Attempt Survivor Support Group

An eight-week virtual support group for those who have survived a suicide attempt

If you have attempted to take your life, you likely experienced a host of emotions: shame, guilt, loneliness, anger, or resentment. You may be carrying a great deal of pain and feel like others can’t possibly understand what you’ve been through. Our suicide attempt survivor support group can be a helpful resource.

Survivors of Suicide Attempts (SOSA) Support Group

Peer support is an important component of healing. Talking with people who have similar experiences to you can be a powerful tool in rebuilding your life.

In SOSA, our new suicide attempt survivor support group, we offer the opportunity for people who have attempted to take their lives to connect in a nonjudgmental and empathetic environment.

Summer 2024 Program Details

8-Week Program, start date TBA

The program will be a closed group of 4 to 9 adults, facilitated by a licensed clinician and a peer with Lived Experience. The group will be run in English.
